Mark Heisler has been missing the point all season, so why should his most recent commentary be any different? So Detroit was a dynasty? Well, it took that dynasty six games to beat an outmanned, inexperienced Bull team and go on to win its first championship. The next year, it took seven games and a Scotty Pippen migraine to squeak past the Bulls. Both years the Pistons had a far easier time beating Western Conference teams in the finals. As for the glory teams of the past, big deal!

Scottie Pippen has filed a countersuit against a Malibu man who alleged the former NBA All-Star assaulted him at a restaurant last year. Camran Shafighi filed a $4-million lawsuit against Pippen, accusing him of a “brutal and unjustified physical attack" that allegedly occurred outside upscale Nobu restaurant after Shafighi had sought a picture with the former Chicago Bull. But in a cross-complaint filed earlier this month, Pippen's lawyer Mark J. Geragos alleged Shafighi cursed at Pippen using racial slurs, spat on him and his children and said, “I'm going to kill you.” The cross-complaint also alleges that Shafighi was “extremely aggressive and noticeably intoxicated” and calls for unspecified damages “according to proof.” Reached Tuesday, Shafighi's attorney, Kathryn Lee Boyd, said she had no comment on the cross-complaint “at this time.” In August, about a month after Shafighi filed his complaint, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced Pippen would not face assault charges after prosecutors determined there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pippen was guilty of committing a crime.

Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen thinks that some fans have been too hard on point guard Derrick Rose. Rose sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last May and missed the entire NBA season while rehabilitating the injury despite being medically cleared to practice in five-on-five situations in mid-February. He received a lot of criticism for not returning after his doctor gave him the go-ahead. "I was kind of surprised people turned on him knowing the difficulty of Derrick's injury," Pippen told reporters at Nike's pro-am basketball league at Whitney Young High School in Chicago on Saturday.

Scottie Pippen is being sued for $4 million by a 49-year-old man who said he was physically attacked by the NBA Hall of Famer at a Malibu restaurant last month. The suit alleges that Camran Shafighi asked Pippen for a photograph for his girlfriend's 12-year-old son but instead got a “brutal and unjustified physical attack” that included being spit on in the face, shoved and punched so hard he ended up on the ground and later in the hospital with a head injury. “At no time did or could Mr. Shafighi physically provoke or fight back, as he was knocked unconscious with the first blow,” the lawsuit said.

Dennis Rodman is ready to take basketball diplomacy to the next level. Fresh off his second controversial trip to North Korea, the flamboyant former NBA star announced plans to stage a pair of exhibition games there in January, featuring a team of fellow ex-basketball players. He even threw out a couple of names on his wish list: Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone. But there's no word on whether his fellow Hall of Famers will be joining Rodman on his next trip to the repressive state that considers the U.S. a sworn enemy and has sentenced American Kenneth Bae to 15 years of hard labor for alleged hostile acts against North Korea.

The Boston Celtics had teams that were more feared and revered. The Lakers had teams with more superstars. But no team in NBA history had more regular-season victories than the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, who completed their 82-game schedule with a record of 72-10. Those 72 victories were an extreme yet impressive way for the Bulls to make a point that their three consecutive league titles from 1991 to 1993 could not.
